Woodside Makes FID for Pyxis Hub Project

Friday, October 18, 2019

Woodside said it has made a final investment decision (FID) for the Pyxis Hub project offshore North West Australia.

The Australian energy company revealed in its third quarter earnings report that the FID was taken for the project in August 2019, and that contracts have been awarded for the design and installation of subsea equipment and infrastructure.

The Pyxis Hub comprises the subsea tieback of the Pyxis, Pluto North and Xena 2 infill wells to support ongoing production from the Pluto LNG Project.

"Development of the Pyxis Hub will support the future operation of Pluto LNG, the Pluto-NWS Interconnector and the broader Burrup Hub vision." said Woodside CEO Peter Coleman.

Woodside plans to drill two new and two in-fill wells, which will be tied-in to existing subsea infrastructure via subsea Xmas trees, flexible flowlines, production manifolds and service umbilicals. The proposed activities are planned to commence in the first quarter of 2020, starting with the Pyxis wells and related subsea installation.

Xena-related drilling and subsea installation activities will follow at a later date and contingent intervention, workover or re-drill activities on existing production wells, if required.

Woodside is operator of Pluto LNG with a 90% interest, with Kansai Electric and Tokyo Gas each holding a 5% interest in the project.
